No, Harry Reid did not say that, that was Shakespeare. However, Harry is apparently (I mean, why else would he broach the subject?) in a struggle with a very delicate condition and he has searched everywhere, and we mean everywhere, for relief.
The Daily Caller: (Yes, I know, but anyway.)
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid once urged Defense Secretary Robert Gates to spend taxpayer money on researching irritable bowel syndrome.
Gates revealed the strange request in his new memoir, “Duty,” writing that Reid made the plea while the military was fully engaged in two ongoing wars.
“With all the major issues we had to deal with, my personal contacts with Senate Majority Leader Reid were often in response to his calls about Air Force objections to construction of a windmill farm in Nevada because of the impact on their radars,” Gates wrote.
“He also once contacted me to urge that Defense invest in research on irritable bowel syndrome,” Gates continued.
“With two ongoing wars and all our budget and other issues, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.”
There is no more to this story at the Daily Caller, but if you want to join in on a chorus of “Boola Boola,” go here. *
Secretary Gates, sir, this was a perfectly reasonable request by the Senate leader. Men and women like Harry Reid decide the fate of our young military charges on a daily basis. How can he do that with this condition?
Have you not seen the look on the senator’s face when he’s addressing that esteemed body, sir? Well, now you know why. Turn the camera around and the room is empty.
On a more personal note: Senator Reid, I am sure you have a whole senate full of young light-skinned pledges without dialects who can rub out the gas when the chili and jalapeño sauce is… um, backfiring. I am sure that what happens in your office, stays in your office; no need to spend taxpayer dollars.

The governor obviously doesn’t need the RG to defend her, she could probably kick all of their doughy raquetball-playing asses in a fair fight, but still.
